2018 NCFR Annual Conference: Families and Cultural Intersections in a Global Context: Innovations in Research, Practice, and Policies

Posted: 12/5/2017 (Conference)

Contemporary families live in a world that is complex, increasingly interconnected, and culturally diverse. Families are affected by continuously evolving economic, technological, ideological, cultural, and political changes. In many areas, a decreasing fertility rate, the decline in household size, the aging population, and the sharp increase in the proportion of women entering the labor force have led to new and diverse family arrangements.

Despite these changes, families remain a central arena for promoting the well-being and resiliency of their members. The 2018 NCFR Annual Conference will focus on innovative approaches, theories, research, policies, and programs that support and strengthen families in all types of Western and non-Western settings. Of particular interest are proposals that focus on new lines of research and prevention and intervention approaches, programs, and policies that support vulnerable families.

The theme allows for a wide variety of topics, debates, and policy analyses. Find examples and more information about submitting your proposal at ncfr.org/ncfr-2018. The online proposal submission system will open in January 2018.
